Ive not been able to get out nearly as much as usual, so I thought, with everything going on why not make it a bender. I had the evening of the 3rd and all day on the 5th, 6th, and 7th of July to fish. I fished whenever I could, risking heat exhaustion, failing classes, and overexertion for this. Would I do it again? Hell yes!
July 3rd – Got on some solid topwater bass in the evening with Tommy. Heres a few pics.

After an 8 hour day on the water, I grabbed a bite to eat, and went back after some topwater bass. Had 5 dinks to hand.

Then the three of us hit some togs

All three of us found the triggers, and got some nice fish. Not at the top of our list, but sometimes you just have to adapt, improvise, and overcome.
I paddled my brans out to get off the water to meet up with Jim Short. The goal was some topwater bass. We had a few blowups, but noting to write home about. I was able to get this shot though. It was a nice way to end what was a great weekend, with some great fish, and awesome friends!
